Securing America: Arms Dealer Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison
He faced life in prison, but an arms dealer convicted of working for a Colombian terror organization gets the minimum sentence allowed by law, 25 years in prison.
FOX News Radio’s Jane Metzler reports in our ongoing series on national security:
He was dubbed the “Merchant of Death.”
(Prosecutors) “Conspiring to kill United States nationals, conspiring to kill United States officers and employees, conspiring to use and acquire anti-aircraft missiles.”
Federal prosecutors, urging a life sentence for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, who called their claims he tried to kill Americans “a lie.” Convicted of four conspiracy counts stemming from his support of a Colombian terror group, U.S. District Judge Shira Sheindlin, giving the 45-year-old the mandatory minimum – 25 years – because there was no evidence he planned to harm Americans before the DEA created an elaborate sting operation to catch him.
